Winter Safety Tips
Heavy snow can cause roof stress problems, roofs should be cleared to keep the weight off of it to prevent  roof collapse.

Exterior doors should always be kept snow free for normal and emergency use.

Exterior vents for heating, dryer vents and oven exhausts should be kept open.

No open burning in the house, as in small barbecues with wood or charcoal.  

Have a CO2 alarm working in your house.

New Jersey Arsenic Awareness Initaitive
Many northern New Jersey residents get their drinking water from private wells, and NJ Private Well Testing Act results from 2002-2012 show that >10% of wells tested exceed state limits for arsenic in drinking water, and in some townships >40% of private wells tested exceeded state limits. The New Jersey Arsenic Awareness Initiative was developed to inform owners about the need to test their wells and the importance of treating drinking water for arsenic when results show levels exceeding the standards.
If you have a private well in Northern New Jersey, check out these videos!
